Mintex would be my choice everyday... They do a range of different pads too. Mintex M1144 s are highly recommended

Green Stuff are also a good bet, although I have no experience of them.

As suggested EBC Greenstuff pads are a good bet, however How come you go through pads so quickly, unless you really rag the hell out of your brakes or you rally/race. I am using Ferodo pads for normal driving, and they have been on for probably comming up to a year, and dont need changing yet

my wife likes to drive with her foot across the brake pedal (makes her fill safe when driving **** nos how ) and i do rag tha ass out of it all the time just got to i drive it like im on a rally track all the time so i might try the higher range of the mintex ones and see how that works out as the ebc ones seem to run out quick

Maybe look at your disc's........Would have to drive bloody hard to get through a set of pads in a month. Maybe change your driving style?

If you're driving like that then it's no surprise your getting through pads so quick. So you have no reason to complain really, either fork out for brakes every month of stop driving like a ****

Maybe upgrade to 288's? I use standard GM issued redrilled 288's and fade is not an issue.
